Mr and Mrs Harrington

Mr and Mrs Harrington, Sandra and Alan had a great day on Friday at their wedding. The weather was kind enough to them. The ceremony was brilliantly done by the priest, what a very enjoyable service. Then on to photo shoots and finally the reception at the Beara Coast Hotel. The service and food was absolutely excellent.

Watch a teaser of the wedding video here below

Allihies Inspireswhat a weekend

I don't suppose that this video will get watched very much at over 16 minutes long. It is a film for posterity of all the great things that happened in Allihies over the weekend. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed listening to poetry and readings of stories. Not surpised at all by the standard of work from Sami Switch and his friends and deligthed at the Music for Dogs theatre that capped it all off. Well done to all involved. Deirdre Collins what a woman for one woman.I can't remember all in the film but, amongst others:Carina McNally 0 SecondsAnita Brohail 39 SecondsTim Goulding 1:57 SecondsRachel Parry 3:43 SecondsTheo Dorgan 4:43 SecondsPaula Meehan 5:45 SecondsTony Curtis 6:38 SecondsSheena Dempsey 8:04 SecondsJane Landry 8:04 SecondsTadhg O'Sullivan 8:53 SecondsClaire Zwaartman 9:36 SecondsDiarmuid Hickey 10:40 SecondsAnita Daly 11:16 SecondsSykoni 12:02 SecondsSami Switch 12:15 SecondsBritney 13:05 SecondsCameron Bloomfield 13;16 SecondsNadette Charlet 14:07 SecondsBill Griffin 15:09 SecondsCarol Caffrey 15:31 SecondsSorry I missed a few things, I just did this for the memories.

Michael Dwyer Festival 2018

On the Saturday lot’s of things were happening, and I guess there are photos taken but that was not my job, we had some enjoyable pints out side the bars listening to a few bits of music between.

Sunday we were away bike racing, Neil got fourth…

On Monday night we went up to Jimmy’s for what has become the unofficial closing night.

and were treated to a song by Sue…

Watch a snippet of Sue’s song here, turn up the sound
